Players can have a hard time passing through the eastern path because of the gnolls. In the west, the forest openings are farther than their camp. Overall, it seems nice. I just hope it's not a Melting Valley edit. Approved.

    The map feels authentic enough for me to believe it's a blizzard map. (I'm not implying it's theirs, though).

    The two bases are designed to be for the competitive scene, I believe.
    The gold mines are placed such that one should have an expansion, if decent enough.

    Others:
    What's the purpose of the Goblin Laboratory?

    You should add a Tavern in the middle of the map with no creeps guarding it.
    That is an enduring design element of all Blizzard-style maps.

    Otherwise looks great.

    Yeah, I'm not really that much of a critic in map-making. I could see the potential of expanding this map into a 4-player map, (FFA or 2v2)

    Doesn't seem like enough trees on players start locations.
